http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/18/AR2006101801679.html WICHITA -- Paul Morrison, a career prosecutor who specializes in putting killers behind bars, has the bulletproof rÃƒÂ©sumÃƒÂ© and the rugged looks of a law-and-order Republican, which is what he was until last year. That was when he announced he would run for attorney general -- as a Democrat. He is now running neck-and-neck with Republican Phill Kline, an iconic social conservative who made headlines by seeking the names of abortion-clinic patients and vowing to defend science-teaching standards that challenge Darwinian evolution. What's more, Morrison is raising money faster than Kline and pulling more cash from Republicans than Democrats. Mark Parkinson, a former chairman of the Kansas Republican Party, is running as a Democrat to be Gov. Kathleen Sebelius's lieutenant. Eight other former Republicans are running as Democrats in Kansas. Nor is Morrison alone. In a state that voted nearly 2 to 1 for President Bush in 2004, nine former Republicans will be on the November ballot as Democrats. Among them is Mark Parkinson, a former chairman of the Kansas Republican Party, who changed parties to run for lieutenant governor with the popular Democratic governor, Kathleen Sebelius. "I'd reached a breaking point," Parkinson said, preparing for a rally in Wichita alongside Sebelius. "I want to work on relevant issues and not on a lot of things that don't matter."
